Thanks so much Skydragon for providing the links to these articles, and all those you link to. I enjoy these titbits, which those of us in the Colonies would otherwise not get to see.

These three in particular remind me of why I have always liked Charles. Though he was born to be King, I think he takes his position very seriously and sees it as an opportunity to do as much as he can for his countrymen. I think he is very concerned to earn people's respect, which the article about the Parachute Regiment reminds us. It was a dangerous course, but he did it because he thought it was important and the right thing to do if he was to wear their beret and badge. And the article about the apprentice carpenter reminds us of how much he has done to help young people with their careers and also to encourage the preservation of the country's heritage by ensuring the traditional craft skills are retained. And the article about Captain Philp reminds us not only that he cares about service personnel but also the fact he makes extra effort to support them by private visits and his notes and gifts.

I admit I am biased, but I think he's made of the right stuff.

Cooking for the Prince of Wales seems like hard work. "If he has lamb it has to be from his own and always natural produce," says Anton Mosimann, the celebrated chef, who has been preparing a number of dinners for Prince Charles at St James's Palace recently.

Standing proudly in its sparkling new green livery, it is the ultimate big boy’s toy – the first steam locomotive built in more than 40 years.

And the privilege of getting it under way on its first official journey will go to Prince Charles.

I don't think that's difficult. I think it's rather logical. He wants natural and he wants economy.

I have the book "Cusine à la carte" by Mosimann, published in 1981 and one of the first books which tried to teach amateurs the secrets of the Grande Cuisine. In it he already advises the reader only to settle for the best and freshest products and talks about the importance of "natural" products and of products you have a relationship with, like those you grew yourself.

So I doubt he finds it such a task to cook for the prince, he probably feels understood by his Royal patron.

I agree Jo.
------------------
The Prince reassured sixth-form students at Thomas Hardye school in Dorset that there is life beyond exams. He commented: "All I can say is I'm so relieved I don't have to do exams any more. I can assure you that making speeches is quite good enough. If you don't pass you can always blame me.
